Gorbachev: The new tired face for Vuitton

Mikhail Gorbachev

Former soviet heavy weight Mikhail Gorbachev has stepped away from perestroika to strut his stuff for Louis Vuitton. He has been photographed in a car sitting next to a Vuitton man bag, driving along Mühlenstraße which famously hosts a cold war icon: the Berlin Wall. Quite a nice picture, I can easily imagine Gorbachev as Russian mafia carrying cash for a hit.

It is interesting that his birth mark is one of his most distinguishing features. Would he be as memorable without the skin blemish, thus chosen for a French luxury fashion label. Each to their own, as Cindy Crawford has her mole.
